Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes charting decayed, missing, and filled teeth. We will also check for any gum disease, and perform an oral cancer exam. X-rays will be taken, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of decay in between the posterior teeth. After we have completed your oral exam, we will then know if you have any dental problems and we can make the appropriate treatment recommendations.
The education about preventing tooth decay starts with the parent when their children are very young and continues with the child as they grow and mature. This will help your child enjoy going to the dentist because it will decrease or completely eradicate the need for fillings. Parents will enjoy it to because it means less cost out of your pocket. Your child's first visit to our office should be 6-12 months of age. We are experienced in doing all phases of dentistry for children. We will only refer to a Pediatric Specialist if there are behavioral management concerns which prevent us from doing our best for your child.

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
